3 schoolboys held for raping classmate

Police yesterday detained three boys including son of a municipal ward councillor for allegedly raping a girl in Rajshahi’s Godagari upazila on Monday.

The accused are class-IX students of a school in the upazila, said police.

Khairul Islam, officer-in-charge of Godagari Police Station, said the accused and the victim used to go to the same coaching centre.

On Monday afternoon, the councillor’s son with the other two took the girl to visit his home, said the OC, adding that no one was present at the house during that time.

While they were gossiping in the house, one of the boys locked the room they were in, and allegedly raped the girl, said police.

The other two including the councillor’s son helped him with the crime, police added.

Police detained the three after midnight following a case filed by the victim’s mother in the night, said OC Khairul.

The accused will be sent to correction centre through court, he said.
